“An Old Favorite, Still Dependably Good After Many Years”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

I first ate the avocado burger at Baba Yega in 1976, before most of the present wait staff was born. It was very good then; it is very good now. I am in Houston once a year and try to have at least one meal here. It is always a pleasant and comforting experience. The service is and always has been friendly and efficient. The rib eye steak on "Steak Night" (Mondays) is also good and very reasonably priced. Unpretentious ambiance. .I hope that Baba Yega never changes.

“Great Relaxed Brunch”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

First time there for Sunday brunch. Food was great, wait staff very good, and a very relaxed environment. A favorite place for us. Will go back for for something else besides brunch.
